Jackson

Morris Knapp came to Michigan in 1840. In the winter of 1843-4 Mr. Knapp settled in Jackson. He soon after became interested in mail routes and stage lines, in connection with D. B. Hibbard. The firm of Knapp & Hibbard was for a long time the largest stage proprietors in the state, and running more miles of mail route than any other contractors. Mr. Knapp has for many years been proprietor of an extensive livery, sale and boarding stable. His pleasant address and accommodating disposition have made for him a host of friends. His son, Charles A. Knapp, is associated Avith H.'G. Sutton in the hack and omnibus line of the city.
John Westren at an early day entered a large quantity of land in Jackson county. He made Jackson his home in 1841, and resided in the city until his death. He was always a large holder and dealer in real estate. He took great interest in the development of the iron mines of Lake Superior, and was a large stockholder in the Jackson Iron Company from the date of its organization. Mr. Westren was a man of sterling integrity and great force of character. He was universally respected and esteemed. His son, Thomas Westren, is a native of Jackson, and has always made it his home. He joined Mr. Douglass Gibson in the establishment of the " Jackson Interest and Deposit Bank," of which he is now, and always has been, the cashier.
